Description
History of Bach Wen Farm

Lying on the North Wales Heritage Coast and originally built as a working farm to meet the needs of the St Beuno Monastery in 630AD, the present buildings cover the remains of the original buildings. When run by the monks, the farm occupied some 500 acres of prime pastureland along the coast. The bakery, granary, pig sties and cattle sheds were in daily use. The millhouse stream still flows through the glade. Some interesting features remain such as the bell tower, the ornamental carvings and a bronze plate of the Last Supper on Bach Wen cottage.

Bach Wen Farm Today

The site to-day has converted the working buildings and accommodation of the monastery into 9 individual holiday cottages. They maintain the tradition and charm of the original buildings whilst including contemporary interiors and modern amenities.

There is access to our own private beach. It is mostly rock and shingle but has sandy patches when the tide recedes. It is safe for bathing and fishing. Paddocks between the cottages and the beach are available for ball games and we also allow dog owners to run their pets in the paddocks as long as they are supervised.

A private lane leads from the cottages down to bluebell glade and then onto the beach. On the left you will see the watermill which has now been converted to the Mill and Hayloft cottages . On the right you will see the slopes of Snowdonia National Park.

Bluebell glade or 'The Glade of Tranquility' as we call it blossoms with glorious bluebells in May. It is a calm and peaceful area to watch the sea and there are benches located nearby for you to relax and enjoy the scenery. We also have picnic areas by the stream that is to the right of the glade. The site is renowned for its sunsets, which are a breath-taking spectacle in the early evening and can be enjoyed with a glass of wine from the cliff edge.
